Greetings from the mountain top…
While The Guru is committed to forever remaining atop the mountain, his saggy buttocks clinched tightly to the boulder, he does keep tabs on the lands below in order to teach and to offer perspective.
News of the shootings in Denver which occurred during the screening of The Dark Knight came to The Guru this morning when his prostate forced him to awaken earlier than planned. Listen to The Guru, children, and listen well.
No amount of words, platitudes, condolences, or sorrow can erase what has occurred. The loss of life under any circumstance is to be mourned, but it is vital that you do two things: 1) keep perspective 2) recognize your power.
There are 6 billion, 9 hundred 73 million, 7 hundred 38 thousand, 4 hundred 33 people inhabiting this rotating orb on which we dwell. 6,973,738, 433. Last night, 6,973,738,371 went to bed without a loved one being gunned down in a movie theater. News shocks us because it is ABnormal. Unusual. OUT of the ordinary.
Those who perpetrate evil want power and they want us to believe evil lurks on every corner, under every bed, and in every safe place. It does not.
Those who have lost their humanity want us to believe everyone around us is only moments away from losing their humanity. They are not.
Those who have no soul want everyone around them to live with the same chaos and fear which governs their own pathetic lives. Do not let it.
Go to the movie. Go to school. Go to the mall. Go to a party. Live. Your. Life. Because 6,973,738,371 woke up this morning as they did the day before and as they will on the morrow.
Have you wondered why there hasn’t been one single airplane successfully hijacked since 9-11? It’s not because of the FBI, the TSA, the CIA, or any initialed organization. It’s because the pack–you, me, and those around us–realized WE have the power and WE must act so WE can survive.
Wake up, ducky. The Calvary isn’t coming over the hill when you are in trouble, John McClane isn’t going to burst into the room with a clever line and three guns just in the nick of time, and The Dark Knight will never be around to save us.
We’re on our own.
When confronted with evil WE must become a pack. WE cannot be defeated. WE are simply too many. WE protect the airlines and WE take down those who would hijack them and WE must protect one another when evil raises it’s pathetic head and WE must stop it. Every. Single. Time.
United we stand.
The next time you are confronted with evil on any level you must turn to the persons next to you, let them know you are with them, and stand up, go nose-to-nose with the evil, look evil straight in the eye and say:
“Time to die, bitch.”
Frontier justice? You’re damn right. The Duke had it right in one of his movies when he said: “I won’t be wronged, I won’t be insulted, and I won’t be laid a hand on. I don’t do these things to other people and I expect the same from them.”
Peace out and stay strong ya freaks
